Scrum Essentials Online Training

In this entry-level Scrum skills training, Simona Millham covers how to implement the Scrum framework within your project team.

Scrum can be a little strange to those unaccustomed to its lexicon and methodology, but it’s a very popular Agile software development framework. Scrum relies on teams of highly skilled, independent, self-managed individuals who build a product iteratively in sprints. If you’re lost already, that’s okay. In this Scrum training, Simona breaks down the Scrum framework into values, practices, and applications of the Scrum framework, as well as team roles, activities, and artifacts

For anyone who leads an IT team, this Scrum training can be used to onboard new employees, curated into individual or team training plans, or as a Scrum reference resource.

Who Should Take Scrum Essentials Training?

This Scrum Essentials training is foundational Scrum training, which means it was designed for new project managers or experienced technical professionals looking to increase their knowledge about Scrum principles.

New or aspiring project managers. Scrum is one of the world’s leading project management methodologies, but you can certainly be forgiven if you’ve never used it — or never even heard of it. If you’re a new project manager, or you want to get into the field of project management, taking this Scrum training won’t just familiarize you with Scrum’s basic concepts of project management. It’ll prepare you for working in and around project management in IT — the field that most commonly uses Scrum. On top of all that, it’ll also make you an all-around better solver-of-problems — which is basically what every project manager is.

New or experienced technical professionals. If you’re a technical professional, especially if you work in a software development company, you’ve likely run into Scrum. You may even have been using some of Scrum’s project management tools without knowing it if you’ve had stand-ups or work in sprints. Either way, the IT world is enamored of Scrum, and learning how to use it is a great move not just for project managers. The very best developers are the ones who use Scrum to navigate expectations and fulfill projects.
